Halloween Fun

October was an extremely busy month for us. James has been the nightfloat resident this month, which means that he works the night shift from Sunday-Friday, as well as a 30-hour shift on Sunday-Monday morning. It's EXHAUSTING, and I've been working extra hours moonlighting to pay for some of the things that we need to fix around the house.

We did, however, manage to have some fun this month! One Saturday afternoon, I had my friend Kim over to make cupcakes, and we decorated them with candy. The guys in the neurosurgery department ate them all in about 2 days.

Here's Kim...














Some of our finest...















James and I also got a pumpkin to carve for our front steps. James did all of the work on that one, b/c my art skills are nonexistent.

Before...















The surgeon at work....a small glimpse of what James does all day...















He had already drawn the face on it at this point, but you can't tell from the picture...















And the finished product! James named him Julius the Jack-o-lantern.
